Upcoming Events
Saturday, May 12 - Gulf County Birding Loop Field Trip

Our trip will include the Gulf County birding loop around the Chipola and Apalachicola rivers. We will meet at the Panama City Mall at 7:00 AM and leave at 7:15. We will be birding fields, woods and wet areas looking for an assortment of birds including Swallow-tailed and Mississippi Kites. Bring plenty of water and snacks, insect repellant, sun screen and wear appropriate clothing and footwear.  For more information about field trips call Ron Houser at 763-7485 (no text messages please) or e-mail at rdhouser@knology.net. Trips are subject to the weather. There are no rain dates.
Saturday, May 26 - Camp Helen State Park  Monthly Species Count

We will meet at the Camp Helen front gate at 6:00 am sharp. Although we typically finish birding about noon, you can spend as much or as little time as you like. We sometimes divide our group to cover the north side of the park as well as the coastal areas. We appreciate any amount of time given to help document our avian friends! 

Please RSVP [only necessary if you plan to come] to lpca08@gmail.com so we have an idea of how many participants to expect. Bring binoculars, scope [if you have one], water and snacks, hat and/or sunscreen. Looking forward to it!
